× Art History Talks with Rebecca Albiani

Icons How does a work of art attain iconic status? This year's art history lecture series will tackle this question via an up-close look at five icons of world art, from the ancient world to the 20th century. We will delve into these works and the circumstances that produced them, exploring questions such as should the British Museum return the Parthenon marbles to Athens? Did the Night Watch really sink Rembrandt’s career? And what might constitute the Great American Picture? All lectures are held on Tuesdays at 11:30am Series tickets $60 - $80 Single tickets $16 - $24

Picasso’s Guernica November 13 Composed in two months in response to the bombing of Guernica in northern Spain, Picasso’s monumental Guernica has become a potent symbol of the anti-war movement. We will follow Picasso’s creative process through his many studies and see which protest painting the public liked better.
